LIFE, in God’s Prescribed Way

Standard

As clear as day, God wants things done HIS WAY. 

In Heaven and on Earth, it’s God’s Way or NO Way.

Today, won’t you ask Him for direction? Won’t you surely pray?

He knows everything, the future for us too, revealed and detailed in a very prescribed WAY.

Won’t you inquire of Him? Everything little thing, simply ask Him TODAY. 

Today, do LIFE in God’s Way. 

Amen 


It was clearly fictitious in “Raiders of the Lost Ark” when the Ark of the Covenant “box” was carried out and ghouls steamed out of it when opened. It was fictitious to think that the Ark carried all the power of God in it, when it was God watching the people watching it. One truth is that God made the people make it. He had a plan and we still talk about that today. He made the people a memory box for them of His Faithfulness when they (as wandering rabble-rousers) walked through the desert 40 years. He made them make a very detailed plan of how to take care of the Ark too. And when the Ark went off plan, so did the people. 

We are that people fallen off of God’s original plan, by Adam’s derailment, but RIGHTED on the rails and CARRIED BY JESUS. We are those people given a FUTUREPRESCRIBED, detailed in the book of Revelation (an IMPORTANT read if you haven’t already).  We are the people of His Plan to be loved and to love Him with all our hearts, souls, and minds. 

God takes care of us.

For taking care of the Ark, David admitted and stated: “We did not inquire of him about how to do it in the prescribed way.”  David brought back the people who were given exact jobs based upon their skills from God, like singing and music making. The Levites were to do the heavy lifting too, poles on their shoulders as prescribed by Moses retelling God’s instructions. Doorkeepers and gatekeepers, musicians and singers. GOD HELPED THEM. They asked and He told them. He actually told them before they asked.

Us too. God tells us a plan before we ask. Just be His.

Why would we in our memory box lives not trust Him for the next life steps too? We carry Him directly, Jesus inside of us. We are Holy Spirit guided. Certainly, “He brought us SAFE thus far!!!”…   So why wouldn’t we inquire of the next step and steps… 

Today, let us do life in God’s Way. 

Enemies? Oh yes. Michal, David’s wife, daughter of Saul, watched the whole thing, seeing finely dressed David dancing and leading the parade, and she DESPISED him. Hated. People will always be at odds with God’s plan for your life. Don’t let that deter you from carrying out God’s plan. Don’t let misery and jealousy and anger bleed into your life. Dance. Once you turn the corner, that person will be behind you anyway. Let them catch up with God.

Dance David, Dance. Us too. Dance

Make a joyful sound!!

Follow God because God is GOOD.

He prescribed our Way with Him on HIS WAY. 

Amen and Hooray!


1 Chronicles 15:1-4, 11-29

The Ark Brought to Jerusalem

After David had constructed buildings for himself in the City of David, he prepared a place for the ark of God and pitched a tent for it. Then David said, “No one but the Levites may carry the ark of God, because the Lord chose them to carry the ark of the Lord and to minister before him forever.”

David assembled all Israel in Jerusalem to bring up the ark of the Lord to the place he had prepared for it. He called together the descendants of Aaron and the Levites:….(many names)…

Then David summoned Zadok and Abiathar the priests, and Uriel, Asaiah, Joel, Shemaiah, Eliel and Amminadab the Levites. He said to them, “You are the heads of the Levitical families; you and your fellow Levites are to consecrate yourselves and bring up the ark of the Lord, the God of Israel, to the place I have prepared for it. It was because you, the Levites, did not bring it up the first time that the Lord our God broke out in anger against us. We did not inquire of him about how to do it in the prescribed way.” So the priests and Levites consecrated themselves in order to bring up the ark of the Lord, the God of Israel.  And the Levites carried the ark of God with the poles on their shoulders, as Moses had commanded in accordance with the word of the Lord.

David told the leaders of the Levites to appoint their fellow Levites as musicians to make a joyful sound with musical instruments: lyres, harps and cymbals. So the Levites appointed Heman son of Joel; from his relatives, Asaph son of Berekiah; and from their relatives the Merarites, Ethan son of Kushaiah;  and with them their relatives next in rank: Zechariah, Jaaziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Unni, Eliab, Benaiah, Maaseiah, Mattithiah, Eliphelehu, Mikneiah, Obed-Edom and Jeiel, the gatekeepers.

The musicians Heman, Asaph and Ethan were to sound the bronze cymbals; Zechariah, Jaaziel, Shemiramoth, Jehiel, Unni, Eliab, Maaseiah and Benaiah were to play the lyres according to alamoth, and Mattithiah, Eliphelehu, Mikneiah, Obed-Edom, Jeiel and Azaziah were to play the harps, directing according to sheminith. Kenaniah the head Levite was in charge of the singing; that was his responsibility because he was skillful at it.

Berekiah and Elkanah were to be doorkeepers for the ark. Shebaniah, Joshaphat, Nethanel, Amasai, Zechariah, Benaiah and Eliezer the priests were to blow trumpets before the ark of God. Obed-Edom and Jehiah were also to be doorkeepers for the ark.

So David and the elders of Israel and the commanders of units of a thousand went to bring up the ark of the covenant of the Lord from the house of Obed-Edom, with rejoicing. Because God had helped the Levites who were carrying the ark of the covenant of the Lord, seven bulls and seven rams were sacrificed. Now David was clothed in a robe of fine linen, as were all the Levites who were carrying the ark, and as were the musicians, and Kenaniah, who was in charge of the singing of the choirs. David also wore a linen ephod. So all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the Lord with shouts, with the sounding of rams’ horns and trumpets, and of cymbals, and the playing of lyres and harps.

As the ark of the covenant of the Lord was entering the City of David, Michal daughter of Saul watched from a window. And when she saw King David dancing and celebrating, she despised him in her heart.


As clear as day, God wants things done HIS WAY. 

In Heaven and on Earth, it’s God’s Way or NO Way.

Today, won’t you ask Him for direction? Won’t you surely pray?

He knows everything, the future for us too, revealed and detailed in a very prescribed WAY.

Won’t you inquire of Him? Everything little thing, simply ask Him TODAY. 

Today, do life God’s Way. 

Amen
